The classic Bitburger - a mature and most agreeable beer - is brewed with the best of ingredients in the same traditional way it has been for many, many years. The result is delicately tart and pleasantly bitter - with a strong hop taste.

This is probably what American beers tasted like 50 years ago before they lost all character. Aroma is pleasently hoppy. Appearance doesn't get high marks due to yellow fizziness, however there is a decent fluffy white head that mostly dissipates and there is some light lacing. The strong suit of this beer is the flavor which exhibits nice hop bitterness. Pretty good.

Large white foamy head, lasts relatively long and leaves fine lace. Light golden colour clear. Hoppy aroma. Silky, little watery, clean taste with a long bitter and dry finish. Nice pils.

BückDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - JUN 17, 2003
UPDATED: JUN 20, 2003 Bitter aroma or sour malt and slight floral hops. Appearance was clear, even through the brown bottle. Looks very clean with a well trained head. Flavor was zesty malt, kind of like pilsner urquell if it wasn't so skunked from it's green bottle. It was dry, bitter, and refreshing on the palate. Overall it's a well done pilsener. This is what american macro's should strive for.

Had on draft out of a 2.0 liter glass boot at the Essen House in Madison, WI. Smells and tastes of your typical pils. Some bitter hops and subdued malts.

This draft brew from the GermanFest in Fort Wayne, IN poured a thin straw yellow carbonated body and a very small head (once again, it was served to us and may have bee poured off). It had a very mild malt aroma and hoppy flavor. It had an initially small hop bite to it that smoothed in its finish along with leaving an excellent lacing.

This Pilsener poured a small white head and there was some lacing on the sides of my glass. The body was pale yellow and there was carbonation observed. It had a hoppy aroma to it and it was very bitter tasting and had a lingering aftertaste to it as well.

Pale yellow in color; gorgeous head. Aroma is herbal and hoppy. It's a bit light on the palate, maybe, but shows a very nice bitterness and an excellent hoppy finish.

My first tasting of Bitburger was while a very young 18 year old airman in Germany, while I thought it was a good bier, there were other Pils available to me that I would much rather have. That said, my most recent tasting some 20+ years later again repeated the same impression, just an okay pils, right even with Becks in my opinion. Pale and thin, lacks any complex tones.

Has a very watery taste to it. Very pale in color, needs a little more spice in the hops perhaps. It has a very thin taste to it
